Asta officially launches with its first major expansion
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 May 2016, 2:30 pm
It is just a little bit odd that Asta: The War of Tears and Winds is launching when its first expansion drops. Those two events seem like they ought to be spaced further apart. Then again, it’s a free-to-play game that isn’t just languishing in “open beta” with an active cash shop forever, which is far more important than just [...]

Here’s how commercial buildings work in Chronicles of Elyria
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 May 2016, 3:00 pm
Chronicles of Elyria’s latest Kickstarter update is all about commercial buildings, which would sound super boring if this were real life. But it’s video games, and commercial buildings should be music to a sandbox fans ears! “While each of the crafting buildings that are part of this IP table are pre-constructed blue-prints, in general, in Chronicles of Elyria there aren’t [...]

Project Genom doubles its world size and improves character progression
Posted by Massively OverpoweredMassively Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 May 2016, 3:30 pm
In-development sci-fi MMO Project Genom released a big patch this week. The inconspicuously named 0.6 update, studio NeuronHaze says, represents big changes to “the bulk of the game content” and “significally change[s]” to game systems. “The world itself has doubled, one plot location added, and the old locations are gradually acquiring their final form (you will see new models, design and [...]

SteelSeries ships its OLED-packing gaming mouse
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 May 2016, 2:59 pm

Did you look at SteelSeries' display-toting Rival 700 mouse in January and think it was just the edge you needed for your gaming exploits? It's time to do something about it. The company's Rival 700 is now available for a pricey (though not outlandish) $100. As before, its centerpiece is a side-mounted OLED screen that both shows data (such as your in-game stats or your team logo) and helps you tweak settings without firing up software on your PC. You can also 'feel' events through customizable vibrations, and swap optical sensors when you're eager for an upgrade. Is this overkill? Probably -- but there's no doubt that you'll have a distinct gaming experience.

    Teaching Philosophy

         My teaching experience stated as far back as the military.  Attached to Navy units that trained the weekend reservist I started the practice of hands-on training.  Years later I still have the hands–on philosophy when I started teaching Linux courses as an adjunct professor with Sinclair Community College.
         I kept this philosophy when designing the Introduction to Linux Security material and labs.  The hands-on lab approach works well in both Linux courses and the feedback from my students; later I received Adjunct of the year for the CIS department.
         With all my computer classes I also believe in an open book philosophy.  In IT I feel knowing where to find the correct answers to questions is a core skill.  Couple that with problem solving labs and I feel this build a strong personal IT skill set to become successful.
         A final philosophy is for me; I should never stop also being a student.  Being up-to-data on technology news, events and changes is critical not just to my success as a teacher also to the success of my students.
